Women Empowerment

The subject of empowerment of women has becoming a burning issue all over the world including India since last few decades. Inequalities between men and women and discrimination against women have also been age-old issues all over the world. Thus, women’s quest for equality with man is a universal phenomenon. What exists for men is demanded by women?
They have demanded equality with men in matters of education, employment, inheritance, marriage, politics and recently in the field of religion also to serve as cleric (in Hinduism and Islam). Women want to have for themselves the same strategies of change which menfolk have had over the centuries such as equal pay for equal work. Their quest for equality has given birth to the formation of many women’s associations and launching of movements. The position and status of women all over the world has risen incredibly in the 20th century. We all know that girls are now doing better at school than boys. More women are getting degrees than men, and are filling most new jobs in every field. There was a time when women’s education was not a priority even among the elite.
Women now cannot be asked to wait for any more for equality!
